In our last episode we’ve helped you find out how tight things need to be and what you can do to improve your performances. But it doesn’t end there. 

If you’re brutally honest with yourself, while comparing your best raw takes to your favorite records, you will probably still notice quite a big difference in the quality of the performance. 

Chances are your timing and intonation are still not 100% where they should be. And besides the fact that you’re probably comparing yourself to outstanding, world class musicians, the main reason for that is called editing. 

Now, most people have at least some idea of what editing is, but they either 
don’t understand it completely doubt that it’s really necessaryor they even believe that it hurts the music!We want to debunk that theory, demystify editing and explain why it is such a crucial step, no matter if your music is supposed to sound organic or super accurate and polished. If you want to end up with a professional sounding record that resonates with people you need to understand the importance of editing.

You gotta understand how powerful it is as a tool to ENHANCE the feel and vibe of your songs, not destroy it.

In this episode we explain what editing can do for you, the different ways it can be used and we give you some practical, real world examples that might or might not surprise you.
